MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadows Take Pigmentation to a Whole New Level


For years, MAKE UP FOR EVER is known to be at the forefront in their colour cosmetics, particularly their eyeshadows.  So to celebrate the brand's 30th anniversary, they released the range MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Shadows (CA $24 / US $21).


3 years of developments, 88% concentrated pigment, 210 eyeshadows and 5 different finishes—these numbers represented how truly amazing this new range of eyeshadows are.  It took MAKE UP FOR EVER Creative and Artistic Director, Dany Sanz to create this current formula.  They're said to deliver up to 88% concentrated pigment in their eyeshadows, which is the highest in the market (the average on the market is way below this number).  These highly pigmented eyeshadows are available in 210 shades in 5 different finishes—Matte, Satin, Metal, Iridescent, and Diamond.

It all sounds good on paper, but how does it live up to its name?

Well, spoiler alert, it's freaking awesome.
LUSH Halloween Products Smell So Good That You Wanna Trick Or Treat at Their Store


Halloween is only two weeks away, everybody is getting pumped: from kids who just want to go trick or treating, to adults who really want to win the best couple costume contest.  My ideal Halloween evening, though, is to sit back, relax, watch a couple of horror movie, and have a bubble bath with LUSH Halloween Bath Treats.

While I'm no longer a little girl getting excited for free candies, I still want my treat, the grown up way... maybe not so grown up because these LUSH Halloween products are seriously adorable.

In a world where every beauty guru is obsessed with Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz and Benefit Gimme Brow (which are both fab btw), some may feel a bit lost when they try to spend less than $25 on a brow product or two.

I'd like to think there is always a more affordable way to do most things, including taming your eyebrows.  Here's what I used:

Happy Thanksgiving to all you Canadians out there!  Hopefully you get to spend some time with your family during this long weekend... And maybe stuffed by the stuffed turkey... get it?

While I didn't have a family-full weekend, I did manage to spend some quality time with my beau (he is family too).  And I didn't forget about the two person feast: we got a rotisserie chicken and I am making some kale salad, some mash, a main with squash and quinoa for tonight :D.

Another thing that I didn't forget is Thanksgiving makeup!  The day that I'm obliged to wear cranberry eyeshadow, and that's what I did.  I pull out my Dior 5-Couleurs Couture Colours & Effects Eyeshadow Palette in Trafalgar (CA $61 / US $60) for this occasion.

You know what makes me happy?  Makeup, yes!  Blush, hey yes!  (Good mood, check).  You should see my blusher collection.... Maybe it's too embarrassing to show, but my point is, I love a good cheek colour.  And we know that is something Benefit Cosmetics does really well.  As I expected, their new Benefit Majorette Booster Blush (CA $36 / US $28) didn't disappoint.
